Meniscal Transplant

Meniscal Transplant

For athletes and active adults who have suffered from meniscus tear or other knee injuries, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for top quality care and advanced treatment options. In some cases of meniscal injury, the meniscus is not repairable and must be removed entirely. Without the meniscus, the knee loses its shock absorber and it can become unstable. In addition, the bone and cartilage of the knee can begin to wear down and cause arthritis and other disruptive knee problems. A meniscal transplant can restore the knee to proper function and prevent worsening arthritis in the future.

Arthroscopic Treatment for Meniscus Replacement

We have highly skilled orthopedic surgeons who use arthroscopic techniques to perform successful meniscal transplants. This allows patients to benefit from a minimally invasive procedure that results in less scarring and faster recovery time. A meniscal transplant involves the placement of an allograft (or donor) meniscus into the knee through small incisions. This type of procedure is safe and has a proven success rate for patients who are active and without severe arthritis.

After a suggested physical therapy regime, Meniscal Transplant patients can return to a high-functioning lifestyle without pain. Athletes regain full range of motion and improved stability from this allograft procedure. When it comes to your meniscus injury, you can trust that we are equipped with the expertise and knowledge it takes to implement the best treatment plan for you. We also offer meniscus repair surgery for patients who do not require a full meniscal transplant.

Contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to learn more about meniscal transplant and how this procedure can improve your sports performance and quality of life.

Fall Sports And Sport Related Injuries

There are six sports offered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for the fall season. However, the season of fall offers the least number of sports out of the three seasons of winter, spring and fall. Some may argue this, but the most popular fall collegiate sport is arguably, football. Which college football team do you cheer for?
